Wedding Trends That We Love

It is the month of love! So, why not talk weddings with our Special Events Team?

Each of our Event Specialists have been at Danversport for well over 10 years. So, when we asked them about their favorite wedding details and trends they had no problem sharing! Danversport Special Event Team

First up was Ron Bilodeau, our Director of Special Events. A wedding trend that he currently loves is the fun and distinctive sweetheart table.

Sweetheart Table

There is no better way to make the bride and groom stand out and feel special.

Just imagine sharing your first meal as a married couple at a luxurious table like this…Sweetheart Table

In addition to making the wedding couple look and feel special. Renting furniture for the sweetheart table alone is a great way to save money. Most couples would love to add some interesting furniture to their floorplan. However, the cost of renting special tables and chairs for the entire room is often too much. Adding a unique sweetheart table to your event design allows you to have fun with furniture while staying on budget.

Another décor element that our Special Event Coordinators love is lighting! Lauren Kane loves when her couples add up lighting to the room.

Up lighting

Up lighting has always looked really amazing in our space. However, now that the walls in our Harborview Ballroom have been painted white, the lighting really stands out!

Meanwhile, Michael Charalambous loves when his clients use spotlighting and gobos. They give the ceiling and walls some texture.

Spot Lights & Gobos

Regardless of the type of lighting that you choose, both Michael and Lauren agree that it will greatly influence the look and feel of your reception space.

In addition to trends in décor we also pay close attention to food trends.

One of our other amazing Special Events Coordinators, Nancy Petronio, loves all of the nontraditional cakes that she has been seeing. Our couples have brought in naked cakes (no frosting), whoopee pie cakes and our favorite … donut cakes!

Making the dessert a detail to remember!

Years ago, once your guests had been served dessert the kitchen was closed for the night. However, over the last few years it has become the norm to offer your guests a late-night snack. This is Heather Maurice’s favorite new trend!

The late-night snack rolls out long after your guests finish their plated meals and have had the chance to drink and dance. Then, just when your guests have worked up an appetite … out comes the comfort food!

Guests go crazy over this new added item and the food is almost always gone by the time the last song plays!

We are looking forward to seeing more of these trends here at Danversport throughout the upcoming wedding season. However, like anything else, weddings trends are always changing. Luckily, our phenomenal team is constantly working to stay current and keep our events trendy and fun!
